"No One" sees some fan favorites back in action and moves the final few pieces into place for a momentous -- and long-awaited -- battle.
This week's trip to Braavos offered a uniquely pleasant scene involving Tyrion, Missandei and Greyworm, who, at this point in the episode, were still hoping for Daenerys' quick return.
One of the most surprising joys of the story's adaptation from book to show has been the undeniable chemistry between Gwendoline Christie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Perhaps these relatively unwarlike developments made for a necessary pendulum backswing after the previous episode's pacifist massacre. But tonight's series of unspectacular confrontations sometimes just felt like stalling or shoddy plotting.
While table-setting is important and necessary, I wish this one had more meat. Or even chicken, the way Sandor likes.
As we've been reminded for a while now, everyone must pick a side; there's no room for "no ones" anymore.
Keep it simple, stupid. That seems to be the ethos guiding the rudder of [this episode].
[A]n hour of big events, changes in legislature, and shifts of power that are more momentous and powerful on paper, than they are on screen.
Tyrion really hasn't seen much action at all this season but we are loving his new squad of Melisande and Greyworm.
"No One" gave us a lot of a) stuff we already knew was probably going to happen or b) stuff we don't really care about, but it did everything with enough panache that it's hard to ever dislike an episode of this show.
Thematically this is a rich episodes that pays off years of character work, but dramatically, man, some of these storylines feel like such a f*cking waste of time-Riverrun is the biggest letdown since Dorne.
"No One," was a tough nut.
